The Foreign Language Minor and Core Concentration

In order to gain a fundamental proficiency in a language while
pursuing a major outside of the Department, students may
choose to complete their Core Concentration or a minor in a
language. Both programs are open to all majors and both fulfill
the University Core Concentration requirements. In order to
complete a Core Concentration in a language, students are
placed at the appropriate level in their chosen language and
are required to complete a minimum of three courses in one
language with at least one course being at the 300 level (or
above). Students pursuing a minor must complete the Core
Concentration requirements and one additional course in the
same language at the 300 level (or above). Core Concentrations
are not permitted in a student’s native language.
